This aint no fish story, what I'm about to write is 100% real. I bought the Kalex 61 a little more than two years ago. I paired it with the Shimano Claris 6'6. I have pulled in a little over 400 striped bass and over 100 Salmon with this set up. Yes, I go fishing that much. The Sacramento river is in my back yard. This year I pulled in a 60" sturgeon with this rig. I was bait fishing for Striper. It took a while but we got it in. Listen! I've had NO problems with this reel. The Kalex series is a great all around reel. You can not buy a better or even match a reel at this price.

I bought a Kalex 51 one month ago. It is my very first reel and was excited to get on the river. Every time I casted I had to use an awful lot of energy to get out into the river and I hear the spool click each cast.There is no on/off slide switch visible to me. The manual supplied is very vague and is non spicific to this model. The word "on select models" is constant. What do I need to do to get rid of the noise, which I beleave will give me a smoother cast?
